Her role involves overseeing the management and supervision of teams, with responsibilities including strategic growth, risk management and technical oversight. Yanthé leads on projects developing the operational direction of her team, utilising her 20+ years of legal experience to deliver wit a commercial, innovative approach. 

Yanthé was a Specialist Reference Group Advisor to CILEX (from February 2019 to September 2021) and during that tenure became CILEX's representative on the Home Buying and Selling Council. She continues to advise Government on the Land Registry's Advisory Council and Digital Property Market Steering Group and more recently has been appointed as the Conveyancer representative on the New Homes Quality Board's Code Review Council.

Having started out in law somewhat accidentally, Yanthé attributes her career in part to the opportunities offered to her by the alternative route to qualification CILEX Provides.
